Nicole by OPI Orna-Ment For Each Other

I must admit, I hate store-limited collections because I do live in a small town, but when I was on my way to Florida in November, I made my boyfriend stop at a Target to look for the "Holiday Glitters!"  Good news - we found them.  Bad news - they sat in the truck of our car in Texas while I was in Florida for a week and it got REALLY cold outside.  The polish evaporated quite a bit and got thick and hard.  I added a ton of nail polish thinner but I never got to try the polish in its original formula.  Regardless, here is Orna-Ment For Each Other!


I originally wanted to wear this as my Christmas manicure.  I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  I did this on 23 December and by Christmas, this is what my nails looked like.  Now, fair warning, my right hand always chips faster than my left, and my index finger always chips faster than any other nail I have.  Also, sorry for the awkward hand placement.


As you can see, this is a red glitter in a red base with a tiny bit of gold glitter in it.  It's a nice little festive touch to a normal red glitter.


Indirect sun shows some texture, and yes - this polish was gritty even with a top coat.


The shade shows all my tip wear.  I don't know if Nicole by OPI just doesn't play well with CND Air Dry or if I'm just THAT hard on my nails.  Either is possible.


Finally indoors with the flash - the gold is a bit hard to see here but it's still there.


So since I had so much tip wear in just 2 days, I decided to add a coat of Glitter In My Stocking, a gold glitter in a yellow base.
I didn't sponge or anything - just used the nail brush and brushed it on my nails.  It wasn't perfect but it did hide the tip wear.


You do have to do about 3 coats to cover well.  I used one coat on my pinkie, 2 coats on my ring finger and 3 coats on my middle and index finger.  It's like a thick French?  Either way I liked it and it made my manicure last a little longer.  :]
